Luke 5:1-11 



LAUNCHING without hesitation 
Awcxy from the peaceful shore, 
Launching from harbor and safety 
Through Reality's open door; 
Launching with all shore-lines severed, 
Eyes on the shining goal, 
Ears for the call to service, 
For the call of a needy soul. 

OUT where the need is the greatest, 

Out where peril is high, 

Out where darkness is reigning, 

Where warfare and conquest lie; 

Out in the turbulent waters. 

Facing the chaotic deep. 

Out where life-guards are needed 

To brave the storms that sweep. 

FOR CHRIST who charters the vessel. 
Whose compass has never failed, 
The Captain of Old Ship O' Zion 
That down through the years has sailed, 
For Christ we'll labor to rescue, 
The lost from depths of despair; 
Then Christ will anchor us safely, 
In the port He has gone to prepare.

There is fragrance in her daily life — there is sweet dignity about her 
character — there is encouragement in her words — there is inspiration in her 
vision, for Christ abides in her heart. Thus we admire Mrs. Smith and her 
beautiful life. For twenty years she has been an instructor at the Bible 
Institute, teaching Spanish, Greek, English and history. During this time she 
has been a patient and humble servant of our precious Lord. Year by year 
and day by day she has been helping and encouraging young Christians in 
their walk with Christ: young Christians who are "launching out for Christ." 

In honor of these years of service for her Master, and because of the 
inspiration she has been to the students of these twenty years, we, the Class 
of 1946, take pleasure in dedicating this volume of the "Light Tower" to her. 
May the Lord continue to bless her richly.

"Daddy" Ramseyer always had, as first administrator of the Bible Institute, one objective in 
view. This objective was the training and preparation of Christian young people for a vital place 
of service in the life of the world. Whether these young people were going to a foreign field or 
were staying in the homeland, he realized their need of a consecrated life, a life that was filled 
with the Holy Spirit of God. He has passed this objective on to those who have followed him, 
both administration and faculty. 

It is with manifest joy that the student body is able to say that the present administration, 
faculty, and staff are striving in every way to see "Daddy" Ramseyer's objective carried out. Their 
joy is to see the students "grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus 
Christ." Their desire is to be of service, in some small way, to the many scores of students 
whom the Lord leads to this campus; to help the young people who leave the Institute to "Launch 
Out For Christ" into the world, to take to mankind the great gift of God's love, salvation through 
Christ. 

One finds the blessing of God resting upon a school only when there is a thoroughly Chris- 
tian, Spirit-filled faculty and administration. The Bible Institute has this kind of a staff, for which 
the Lord is to be praised. The prayer of the "B. I." family is that such blessing might continue. 
Praise God for them all, and may they, as the years pass, see their objective realized, with all the 
students vitally serving mankind in many walks of life, all having the desire to see men saved 
through the shed blood of Jesus Christ.

"Launching out" is as challenging as it is descriptive. It suggests both starting on a career 
and moving with force and swiftness. It lights up the only kind of response that is fitting to the 
call of Christ: "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men." This invitation to engage in 
the great work of human redemption calls for a prompt and irrevocable decision. When first 
given tO' fishermen on the shore of the Sea of Gcdilee, there followed that kind of response: "And 
they straightway left their nets, and followed Him." That decision changed their lives and their 
careers. It gave to the world's Saviour the nucleus of a working force to carry forward His 
redemptive mission. 

The challenge of Christ to youth today comes with fresh urgency. What the world needs is 
a force of Christian youth so utterly dedicated to Him that they will risk all in the greatest of all 
adventures, without hesitation or delay.

There are various launchings upon many kinds of seas in the course of a life-time. A launch- 
ing indicates the beginning of something, the leaving of a port, a departure from a base, a putting 
out to sea. For a vessel, it refers to sliding from the slip into the waters to be of service to man. 

This is all meaningful symbolism. "Launching out for Christ" expresses not only a new be- 
ginning, a commencement, but also a continued activity. It is not only a launching, but a launch- 
ing out; out where men are dying and need help. It means out of ourselves, out of our security, 
out of our softness; out to the ends of the earth to carry the message of hope to v/aiting souls. 
What is done out there is the acid test of the education we have received. 

A true education must also instill a worthy objective. No apology is necessary when it is 
"for Christ" that we live and serve. Much of modern education has majored on self-advancement, 
how to be a success and get ahead. It is materialistic, earthbound, self-centered, and short- 
sighted. A true Bible education will aim high at living and working "for Christ."

They were tired and discouraged. All night long they had labored and now Simon must 
say, "Master, we toiled all night and took nothing." They were washing their nets making 
ready for the next night of work. 

They were tired and discouraged, but they were ready fishermen, too. Their boats were on 
the shore and their nets were near at hand being cleaned and repaired; they themselves were 
ready to put out from the shore at the word of the Master. At His command they were ready to 
"Launch out into the deep" and let down their nets. 

We, too, may have labored earnestly and long, but if we have run ahead of our Lord and 
have left Him behind, we have caught nothing; and the precious cargo of souls we would have 
brought home has not been found. The "fishers of men" have failed. 



Let us be willing to wait, as these disciples 
waited in their boats, until Christ is finished 
speaking and ready to give the command, 
"Launch out into the deep." Then without hesi- 
tation let us rise and launch out for Christ to 
gather those souls that must know Him as their 
Saviour or be lost eternally!

Four young fishermen had been disciples of Christ approximately a year, but were still living 
independent of His will. On one occasion they fished all night and caught nothing. Quitting, 
they began to clean their nets, but Jesus came on the scene. He desired these men for His service, 
but they needed first to recognize His lordship. He therefore commanded them saying, "Launch out 
into the deep and let down your nets for a draught." Such a command must have seemed absurd 
to Peter and the other experienced fishermen. Just to prove to Him how futile such an effort 
would be, they let down the net; but it enclosed such "a great multitude of fishes" that it began to 
break. Seeing this, Peter fell submissively at the Saviour's feet, but Jesus said, "Fear not, from 
henceforth thou shaft catch men." 



Many young men and women today are like these four disciples — saved, but living for self, 

independent of the will of God. Multitudes are , ___^ , 

perishing in the sea of sin for want of some one %\ 

to go where they are to enclose them in the Gos- 
pel net. If you have sought to "fish" independent 
of His command, submit fully to Him and move 
according to His bidding. Efforts performed at 
His word are sure to bring satisfactory results.

God gives unto mankind a clarion call: "Follow me." Some men follow, others go their own 
way, the way of death. Over the years great multitudes have responded affirmatively to Christ's 
call, and of these multitudes, the Lord has led many to the halls of the Fort Wayne Bible Institute. 
To this throng, following has meant more than nominal service. It has meant sacrificial living; 
it has meant self-giving; it has meant being a firebrand for Christ; it has meant burning out for 
the Master they serve. 

Service of this type is pleasing to the Lord, and it is this type of service that the presort 
student body is endeavoring to give to their Master. The underclassmen have one, two, or more 
years of training to enjoy before entering fully upon their life's work. The seniors are deemed 
ready to go into that work immediately, and as they begin they have going with them the best 
wishes of everyone. They have been in training for the required time, and are now "Launching 
Out for Christ." 

"Daddy" Ramseyer's objective is being realized again, the objective of training and preparing 
Christian young people for a vital place of service in the life of the world. As they are trained 
and as they go, they serve Christ in the work of bringing men to Him.

Souls are dying in the sea of sin. The turbulent, raging waters are bringing many to death 
and destruction. Unless more Christians throw out the life-lines or man the life-boats, these souls 
will perish. 

We, the class of '46 have finished our training, with Mr. Gerig at the helm as class advisor. 
As we go out from "B. 1.," it is to rescue these dying souls before it is too late. With Christ as 
Captain on our boat, we are launching out into the deep. As "fishers of men" we are letting 
down our nets to catch men. Whether going !o South America, Africa, or any other part of the 
world, or remaining in the United States, we follow Christ as Captain and Pilot. Trusting that we 
shall be used to reach many with the help of the great Captain of our salvation, we go forth prais- 
ing the Lord for fits guidance, strength, and blessing.

The campus of the Bible Institute and surrounding places of beauty make this an ideal site 
for summer school study, as well as recreation and relaxation. There are many beautiful trees 
and shrubs on the campus itself; and Foster Park, on the banks of the St. Mary's River, nearby, 
gives added incentive to spend the summer here. Many young people chose to spend their va- 
cation months in study in these beautiful natural surroundings. 

Those coming for the summer school at "B. 1." were offered three classes in each session. In 
the four week terms the subjects taught were Bible doctrine and church history in the morning 
and typology in the evening. In addition to these, private instruction in voice and piano were 
available to those who desired it. 

Due to the fact that the enrollment was smaller than during the regular term, it was possible 
for each student to take part more in the class discussions. The regular morning chapel service 
was also a bit more valuable, for the smaller group made the messages cf faculty members or 
visiting speakers seem more personal. 

The testimony of those who attended Sum^mer School is that they received great spiritual 
benefits from it. These benefits came through the study of God's Word under the instruction of 
consecrated servants of God, as well as from the general Christian atmosphere which pervaded 
the campus.

Jesus sat in a boat, teaching the throng that had pressed upon Him. After His talk to the 
people and to the disciples then present, Jesus turned to Peter with an odd request, "Launch out 
into the deep and let down your nets for a draught." Luke 5:4. This the disciples did, though 
they were skeptical, as the labor of the night just past had ended in failure. But now they went 
out with the Master, following a time of instruction from and fellowship with Him. Success was 
theirs this time, and they gave Christ the glory for it. 

As we see this situation, we see not only the few disciples of that day, but we see also God's 
children of today, especially the students of the Fort Wayne Bible Institute. Like the disciples, 
they pressed around Jesus to learn of Him. After close fellowship with Him, and after receiving 
His instruction through the faculty of the Institute, the students are seen "Launching Out for 
Christ." They ore letting down their nets to catch men. 

These student fishermen are always busy during the school year. Sometimes they are "fish- 
ing for men" right on the campus, at Youth Conference or Mission Band. Again they are found 
in the city of Fort Wayne, at street meetings, or giving out tracts or "New Life" booklets. Another 
time they are busy in the vicinity of Fort Wayne, serving as student pastors or working as Gospel 
Teams, taking song and sermon to needy men. Still again these same "fishers of men" are pray- 
ing for "the regions beyond" or giving to the support of those serving there. 

All of this service is preparation for greater service when these same fishermen shall have 
entered the larger field God has for them. But until they go on to greater work they shall continue 
to praise Him here and now for the souls God has saved through their efforts.

Mission Band 



One of the highlights of the Bible Institute's activities is the Students' Mission Band. Each 
Friday evening the students gather in the chapel for the weekly Mission Band Service. We have 
witnessed the gracious blessing of God upon these services during the past year; for Satan has 
been defeated, and many victories have been won for the Lord at the altar of prayer. 

Our missionary vision has been enlarged and our hearts have been greatly challenged by the 
inspiring messages given by laborers from many of the needy fields of the world. The challenge cm.d 
responsibility of reaching the last unreached tnbe with the Gospel lies heavily upon us. Especial- 
ly is this true in the light of the speedy return of our Lord, who said: "I must work the works of 
Him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh when no man can work." So we must work, 
and work diligently, because we believe we are living at the sunset of the day. Great opportu- 
nities present themselves today, for tomorow never comes. 

This year the Mission Band assumed the full fmancial support of a missionary on the field- — 
Miss Leona Lehner, a servant of the Lord in Ecuador, South America. We pray that God will 
greatly bless her and use her to win precious souls to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. 

The Mission Band prayer is: 

"Lord, give a vision, burning within. 
Of sinners dying, lost in their sin. 
We've a commission, Jesus to preach. 
I'll do my part. Lord, others to reach."

The Messiah 



December 16 marked the second annual presentation of Handel's famous oratorio, 
Messiah," by the Special Chorus in Founders Memorial. 



"The 



This student chorus of over one hundred voices was under the direction of Prof. Oliver Steiner, 
with Mrs. Steiner at the piano and Prof. Robert Pfundstein at the console of the organ. The solo- 
ists were: Soprano, Helen Limbert, Fort Wayne. Indiana; Alto, Julia Lehman Beitler, Berne, In- 
diana; Tenor, Carlton Eldridge, Lansing, Michigan; Baritone, Paul Fuller, Lansing, Michigan. 

As members of the chorus, we found the two classes a week to be more than meetmg a re- 
quirement; each rehearsal being beneficial, both educationally and spiritually. The lessons learned 
in tonality and expression were practical and very valuable to those preparing for public Chris- 
tian service. As members of the class we express our appreciation, first, to our director, whose 
patience and instruction made hard work a pleasure. Second, we are grateful to the artist who 
gave us this incomparable oratorio. It opens by bringing the rays of prophecy beautifully into 
the full light of reality, and leaves us with the triumphant strain of the glorious return and eternal 
reign of the Messiah. But most of all, we greatly appreciate the Person of the Messiah Himself, 
Who graciously blessed as we lifted those words of announcement: "His name shall be called, 
Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace."

Youlh Conference 



Rev. Dwight L. Niswander of Lima, Ohio, opened the Sixth Annual Youth Conference on 
October 19, 1945, by the introduction of the theme chorus, "Jesus, What a Precious Friend." 
Through Rev. Niswander's able direction and in his solos as well, the spirit of praise was promi- 
nent in all the services. 

Rev. Walter W. Arnold, recently returned from the Ivory Coast, Africa, gave to the whole 
conference a strong missionary emphasis. His discussion group on Saturday morning was great- 
ly appreciated and highly practical, for there the problem "Who makes a good missionary?" was 
brought to the foreground. In the Saturday and Sunday afternoon services, at which Rev. Arnold 
spoke, many young people received a challenge and gave themselves to the Lord in full conse- 
cration, to go or to stay in any part of the world, as the Lord directs. 

Rev. Elmer D. Piper of Chattanooga, Tennessee, gave the evangelistic addresses which high- 
lighted the Conference. Having been a pastor before becoming a member of "The Fuller Evan- 
gelistic Foundation," Rev. Piper knows how to meet the problems of modern youth. His dynamic, 
Christ-centered messages were a real source of encouragement and blessing to all who were 
privileged to hear them. 

At this, the Sixth Annual Youth Conference, young people were saved and many others gave 
themselves to the Lord in complete consecration. To Christ we ascribe all the praise for these vic- 
tories that were won. Praise the Lord for His faithfulness.

street Meeting 



"What time did you say that special trolley leaves?" "Hurry or we'll be late!" "Are you 
going to street meeting tonight?" "Who's to give the special music?" "Did you buy tokens in 
the office?" Such remarks as these may be heard anywhere around the dorm on Saturday or 
Sunday evenings when the weather is good, for one of our favorite methods of spreading the 
Gospel is by holding street meetings. These meetings are planned and supervised by Mr. Huff- 
man and a student committee. 

At 7:30 on Saturday evening and 7:45 on Sunday evening a large group of the students gather 
on Transfer Corner in the shelter of the Courthouse to sing and tell the Gospel story. Each meet- 
ing starts with group singing followed by prayer and testimonies. One of the students brings a 
message, short and to the point, in which the listeners are exhorted to receive Christ as Saviour. 
One of the high points of the meeting, to which many stop to listen, is the special music given by 
a trio or quartet from the student body. 

Not the least of the activities is the handing out of tracts. A corps of students is divided 
among the four corners, each well supplied with tracts. The average number given out is about 
3,000 each evening. 

When the program is over we board the first No. 4 trolley and sing the praises of Christ till 
we reach the school, where we thank Him for an evening well spent in His service.

New Life 



We are firm in the belief that there is only 
one way to be saved, and that one way is 
through the shed blood and resurrected life 
of Jesus Christ. With this in mind, the Fort 
Wayne Bible Institute, aided by other Chris- 
tians, has published a booklet entitled "New 
Life." This booklet contains a statement of 
the experiences of Christians prominent in 
various spheres of life, biblical statements 
on salvation, a concise statement on "How 
to be saved," an appeal to do it immediate- 
ly, a section on knowing you are saved, and 
"liow to live the Christian Life." 

Ten teams are working in the city of Fort 
Wayne to present a copy of "New Life" to 
each home in the city. The girls present the 
booklet with the request that it be read. As 
the Lord opens the door to a home, the girls 
do personal work to win the souls in that 
home for Christ. The Lord has been bless- 
ing this work and many have been the evi- 
dences of hungry hearts and the opportu- 
nities for winning others to Christ. 





Trad Team 



On Saturday evenings one finds about a 
dozen men of the Institute distributing tracts 
in about one hundred beer gardens and 
bowling alleys of the city of Fort Wayne. 
The men are assigned to this work by the 
Practical Work Committee. In addition to 
the tract distribution on Saturday evenings, 
racks are maintained in several of the ho- 
tels, restaurants, and railroad stations. 

By tract work in its two phases, the mem- 
bers of the Team are privileged to give out 
about 3500 tracts weekly. Many are the 
contacts made and the opportunities opened 
for witnessing. Eternity alone will reveal 
the true- worth of this work, for the Lord has 
said that - His Word will not return unto- 
Him void. -

Child Evangelism 

The teachers of Child Evangehsm classes, 
which classes have cm average weekly at- 
tendance of about 175 children, feel that 
theirs is a great responsibility and privilege. 
Many of the children taught come from 
homes where there has been little or no 
teaching of the Word of God, and often they 
hear the story of Jesus for the first time. 

The teachers are under the direct super- 
vision of the International Child Evangelism 
Fellowship, and use their course of Bible 
study, which is entitled, "Egypt to Canaan." The daily prayer of the leaders is that the love of 
God shall warm the young hearts of the children and bring them into a genuine experience of 
salvation; and their deepest desire is that these lives shall be yielded completely to God for future 
service to Him. "Suffer little children to come unto Me, and forbid them not: for of such is 
the kingdom of God." Luke 18:16b. 




Sunday School Teachers 




The Fort Wayne area offers 
many opportunities for Gospel 
ministries. Among these are 
opportunities to teach Sunday 
School classes of various age 
groups in the missions and 
churches of different denomina- 
tions. Twenty-one of the stu- 
dents minister in this capacity 
as port of their Practical Chris- 
tian Training and many church- 
es of the city have a real need met in the teaching of their classes. 

This training affords good experience and also gives the students a responsibility for those 
to whom they minister. Mapy of the lessons learned in the class room can be used in this practical 
way. This gives a motive for thorough study of God's Word, and the students feel constrained to 
share their knowledge with others. 

The fact that some Sunday School pupils have given their lives to the Master as a result of 
these students' efforts proves the value of this ministry.

The Bible Institute cherishes the fine spirit of fellowship which it sustains with so many pas- 
tors of various denominations through its Gospel Team ministry. This phase of student ministry 
has grown in extent each year and it has afforded mutual blessing to students and to thousands 
to whom they have ministered. The teams go out organized to conduct such services as week- 
end revivals, rally day services, missionary programs, and youth conferences, and to assist in 
any of the regular services of the churches. They depend upon the Spirit in practice, in prepa- 
ration, and in the performance of all services. Inconsequence, God has graciously given the fruit- 
age of "New Born" souls for the Kingdom. ,

Jesus has commissioned His children to take the Gospel to those who have never heard, but 
the work is far from being completed. The bicycle, cccnoe, ricksha, and other such vehicles have 
had their day, and to some extent must still be used. Today the same challenge faces God's peo- 
ple, but under vastly different circumstances, especially in regard to travel and communication. 
But if the last request of the Lord is to be carried out, "Go ye into all the world and preach the 
Gospel," means of travel comparable to this age will have to be used. That means the use of 
aircraft. 

In recent years students of the Bible Institute have become interested in using aircraft in mis- 
sionary work and because of this interest, the Missionary Airmen's Fellowship was formed. The 
purpose of this Fellowship is to train prospective missionary candidates in the theory of aerody- 
namics and in actual flight training. At the weekly meetings the members discuss problems per- 
taining to aviation. When school work is up to par the members go out to the municipal airport 
and take advantage of the low rates of the airplane which the Fellowship has leased. 



It is the desire of every member of the Fellowship 
those who have never heard. 



to use aircraft in speeding the Light to

Student Pastors 



Another important field in God's vineyard is the work of the local pastorates surrounding the Bi- 
ble Institute. "Training for service, and service in training," surely holds true for ten young men who 
are student pastors. Sent from the Institute, they regularly feed their flocks which represent 
seven denominations covering a radius of approximately thirty-five miles. 

These men carry a full load of class work and study along with the work of the pastorate. 
Already they realize that the only person within the church who cannot take his problems to the 
pastor is the pastor himself. Yet such sayings as, "It's good to be in service for Him," and 
"Serving others in behalf of Jesus Christ is my greatest blessing," characterize the attitudes of these 
men as they serve while in training.

5 O'clock Prayer Meeting 



At the Five O'clock Missionary Prayer Meetings the students press to the heart of God tiie 
needs of the mission fields throughout the world. On Monday evening the fields represented are 
Mexico, the West Indies, and Central and South America; Tuesday ■ — Africa and Madagascar; 
Wednesday — India, Burma, and Ceylon, and the little known but needy countries of Nepal, Af- 
ghanistan, and Baluchistan. On Thursday the needs of China, Japan, French Indo-China, Tibet, 
Korea, Manchuria, and Mongolia are prayed for; Friday — Europe, the Near East, and the Jews; 
Saturday — Alaska, Labrador, Canada, and the United States; Sunday — the Netherlands East In- 
dies, the Philippines, Australia, New Zealand, the Malay Peninsula, the Pacific Islands and the 
school Gospel Teams. 

The deep concern on the hearts of the students at the Prayer Meetings is the appalling need 
of the world. The fervent prayer of the students each evening is that the Lord will thrust forth 
laborers into the fields of the world. The fields are ripe unto harvest, ready to yield precious 
souls. These souls need to turn from their present darkness to the glorious Gospel light of Jesus 
Christ, the Lord and Saviour of the world. 

The Lord honors the prayers of His children and blesses the fields and people prayed for; of 
this the students are confident, for He has promised to do so. Not only that, but those who pray 
also realize enrichment in their own spiritual lives. The Lord has blessed those who have prayed, 
drawing close to them in sweet fellowship as they have carried a burden for those bound by the 
chains of sin and death.

The Students' Mission Band assumed the full sup- 
port of Miss Leona Lehner as their missionary this 
year. Miss Lehner, former Dean of Women, is now 
laboring at Esmeraldas, Ecuador, South America. 
She left Miami, Florida, on July 18, 1945, arriving at 
Esmeraldas on August 12, there to begin language 
study and active work immediately. She is work- 
ing both with the Cayapa Indians and the Negroes 
of the area, teaching a young ladies' Sunday School 
class, and doing children's work. 

The people with whom Miss Lehner labors, their 
homes, their mode of travel, the local congregation, 
and a baptismal service are all pictured above. 
Pray for our missionary as she willingly serves in 
Ecuador, that many souls might find Him through 
her labor of love for her Master.

Since part of life is social and physical, training for service must cover these realms as well 
as other realms. To be of best service to God, the students must keep their physical bodies in 
good condition. This they accomplish through the physical education program of the school. In 
one's daily walk he meets many people in varied activities. In the dining room or walking be- 
tween buildings, on campus cleanup day, moving day, or just any day, life is enriched by as- 
sociations. All of these associations help to prepare the Christian for his life of service, for one 
must live among people in order to love them. 

Life itself is the greatest teacher of mankind, and students praise the Lord for the power of God 
in their lives which enables them to live above reproach. To God be the glory for the victorious 
life in Christ daily, as the students are training for "Launching Out for Christ."

Toward the close of the last school year, it became evident that the prospective enrollment 
for this year could not possibly be accommodated unless there was provision made for additional 
dormitory room^. The possibilities of several plans were explored, and it was finally agreed that 
a dormitory that could be constructed quickly with considerable student labor was the only pos- 
sible solution. After considering several plans, it was decided to build a two-story "L shaped" 
building, using as much non-critical material as possible. 

Under God's good providence, the work progressed rapidly and many impossibilities became 
possibilities. As a result Providence Hall was put into use on the eighteenth of December, a 
new building with thirty-five dormitory rooms, a reception room, tv/o bath rooms, and laundry 
and furnace rooms. The building is heated by c: gas burning, hot water furnace and the water 
for its laundry and bathrooms is heated by automatic electric water heaters. 

An impressive dedication service was held in Founders Memorial Chapel on Sunday, Jan- 
uary the thirteenth, with J. Francis Chase of Chicago giving the dedicatory address. The girls 
occupying the building had made preparations for open house. The building (as pictured above) 
was soon filled to capacity with interested visitors, who praised the Lord for His miraculous 
v/orking in bringing this building into existence,

Perhaps every College and Bible Institute has an alumni organization whereby friendships and 
ties formed in student days are kept a-glow. The Fort Wayne Bible Institute is no exception to 
the rule. In the early years of her existence such an organization was begun and today bears 
the name of "The Fellowship Circle." "Truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son 
Jesus Christ" (I John 1:3). At the present time its fellowship is encircling the globe with mem- 
bers serving the Master in all parts of the world. 

At least once a year each member is contacted by a letter from the president. Executive com- 
mittee meetings are held twice a year at which time projects are planned and presented to the 
Circle members at the annual meeting. As a part of the Institute commencement week program 
a Fellowship Circle Dinner is held in the Institute dining room. Many members who do not find 
it possible to visit their Alma Mater at any other time of the year attend this event. An interesting 
program is arranged and as a special feature representatives of each ten-year graduating class 
give some recent word about members of that class. 

God has made The Fellowship Circle an organization of untold blessing to its members in the 
years past, and we are looking to Him to continue to do so until Jesus comes.

Great Christians live on in influence long after 
their voices are silenced. Stone and mortar, pen 
and ink are not needed to keep these men alive 
in the minds of their fellows, though these do 
serve to quicken and add color to the memory 
of such men. Rev. J. E. Ramseyer, one of the 
founders of the Bible Institute, was one of these 
unforgettable Christians. 

The Missionary Church Association is planning 
to build a structure to be used, in part as offices 
and bookstore for the Association and the Bible 
Institute. The latest plans (pictured above) show 
a very picturesque building, one that w^ill do much 
to add to the beauty of the vicinity of South 
Wayne Avenue and Rudisill Boulevard. The 
building is to be a memorial to the life of Rev. 
J. E. Ramseyer, one of the founders of the Associ- 
ation. "Daddy" Ramseyer stood firm through 
many trials over the years, and this building will 
stand through many storms as God's reminder to 
succeeding generationsi of Christians that He is 
able to produce "great men of God." 

Mrs. J. E. Ramseyer, his wife, has given to 
posterity the life story of this great man of God. 
In the book "Joseph E. Ramseyer, Yet Speaking," 
she has preserved the marvelous account of his 
life and the inspiration of his messages. She is 
pictured at the left holding a first copy of the book.

Our "Gym" Classes 



The Christian's body is "the Temple of the Holy Ghost." ReaUzing this, the students desire 
to be at their best for Him. Since exercise is the only key that will unlock the door to physical 
fitness, the fellows and girls each gather in the gymnasium twice a week for calisthenics and 
competitive games. 

The girls are directed by Jane Bedsworth and the men by "Bob" Weber, to the tune of "one, 
two, three, four; one two, . . . etc.," or to the tune of the referee's whistle. They find, to the glory 
of God, that the physical education program keeps everyone better physically, enabling them to 
labor more efficiently in the service of the Lord.

We Done it! 



Pictures, pencils, rulers, rubber cement, dummy layouts, etc., etc., are spread out upon the 
tables. The "Light Tower" is being put together. After innumerable hours of working late and 
early, it goes to press, and we sit back and relax. But even this relaxing is not for long, for proofs 
must be read and other items of business taken care of later. But we enjoy every bit of the work, 
even in spite of tired bodies, for it is all done unto the Lord and for His glory. 

As a staff, our sole aim is to bring glory to God through the portraying of life at "B. I." We 
have tried to give a clear and fair portrayal of campus activities, for to put too much emphasis on 
cny one phase of life would be to deceive. Study and activities, worship and service, personnel 
and materiel are all described verbally or pictiared here. As the "Light Tower" goes forth, we 
pray that it may be used to bless souls, drawing them nearer to God. We pray also that it might 
be used of God to give to some a vision of the terrible condition of the lost, a burning desire to 
help them, and a call to service. May it be the means of strengthening many, resulting in their 
"Launching Out For Christ," 




Page one hundred 



They Helped Greatly 




The accomplishing of a large and difficult task is possible only through the co-operation of 
all persons involved. The publishing of the 1946 "Light Tower" has upheld this principle, for the 
staff and a number of business men have worked together successfully to the glory of God. 

As the staff, we wish to express our appreciation to several of these men. To Mr. Gerald 
Coffman of the Erwin Studio, to Mr. Virgil Montague of the Fort Wayne Engraving Company, to 
Mr. C. H. Muselman of the Economy Printing Concern, and to Mr. Walter W. Neumon of the 
Neuman Studio, the staff says: "We thank you for your patience, suggestions, and assistance, 
for without these we would have been greatly handicapped . Again we say, 'thank you.' "

SURVIVAL OR DESTRUCTION? 

"The prevailing education is destined, if it continues, to destroy western civiliza- 
tion, and is in fact destroying it." — Walter Lippmann. 

A WORTHY EDUCATION 

• lays the foundation of life in the knowledge of God, for "the wicked 
shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God." 

• imparts vision of life's dimensions and possibilities, for "where there 

is no vision, the people perish." 

• gives priority to spiritual values, "for many walk . . . whose end is 
destruction . . . who mind earthly things." 

• disciplines heart and mind for effective Christian living, "for wide is 
the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction." 

• leads to the saving of human life, not destroying it, for "the Son of 
man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them." 



THE FORT WAYNE BIBLE INSTITUTE gives first place to first values in education 
... it honors the authority of God's Word ... it makes room for prayer and spiritual 
culture ... it seeks to relate human life to the plan and purposes of God ... it 
relates education to the great task of human redemption according to the Great Com- 
mission ... it regards the fear of God as the beginning of wisdom. . . .

It is a blessing to have good neigh-

of the First Missionary Church ever 
since its inception. For years we have 
enjoyed warm, neighborly relations 
with the Fort Wayne Bible Institute. 
This uninterrupted harmony and co- 
operation has resulted in mutual bless- 
ing and spiritual enrichment. Our de- 
sire is that it may ever be so and that 
our testimonies may ever ring true to 
the Precious Book and to our Precious 
Lord.

cluding $250,000 cash to reduce 
Civil City taxes in 1945, and free 
lighting of streets, civil city build-

totaled a saving of $445,000 — equiva- 
lent to a reduction of $2.38 in taxes 
on every $1,000 of assessed valua-
